Whether you’ve been with us for years or entering the District for the first time, we’re excited to welcome you to Naperville 203 for the 2018-2019 school year.
A welcome back to school would not be complete without first touting some of our District achievements from last school year. The 2017-2018 school year was full of inspiring moments in and outside of the classroom.
We continue to make progress on our Focus 2020 Blueprint Commitments including leading as a model for integrating Social Emotional Learning (SEL) into curriculum across the country and looking at the how to best use our school day at all levels.
Naperville 203 continues to earn national rankings - named the Best School District in America by the National Council for Home Safety and Security, and ranked overall third in the state, the highest rated large unit district, by Niche.com.
These accomplishments are due to our outstanding students and staff who continue to strive for success in and out of the classroom.
34 NCHS and NNHS seniors were named 2017 National Merit Scholarship finalists, and five seniors received the 2017-2018 National Hispanic Recognition Program Award.
Our students and staff inspire me as compassionate community contributors. Many student groups raised money or items for schools, families, animals affected by the 2017 hurricanes.
Both NCHS and NNHS students brought home the hardware! At NCHS the Boys Water Polo team and Flight Yearbook Staffer Megan Mehta earned the top titles in IHSA State Competitions. The Girls Cross Country, Boys Soccer, Girls Track and Field, Math Team, Ping Pong, and WYSE (Worldwide Youth in Science & Engineering) were all state champions for NNHS. The Huskies Girls Cross Country Team also finished second in the nation at Nike Cross Nationals, and NCHS color guard member Emily Wilkinson was selected to perform at U.S. Army All-American Bowl.
I look forward to an empowering 2018-2019 school year full of students owning their education and teachers supporting them along the way.
A high-quality public education is a top priority of our community and remains a draw for families moving to the area. Thank you for your continued support and commitment to education and empowering our students.
